Alumni Association

Welcome to the UCCS Alumni & Friends Association!


As you prepare to celebrate your graduation from the University of Colorado Colorado Springs, the Alumni and Friends Association would like to extend our congratulations as we welcome you into an alumni family that now numbers more than 42,000 graduates.

Your membership in the Alumni & Friends Association is complimentary. Our goal is to keep you connected to your alma mater and to your  classmates as you grow and develop professionally. Each year, we offer a number of special events designed to enable networking in your communities, appreciation of the arts, interaction with other alumni and their families, and lectures from your favorite faculty members. We also offer events in many cities throughout the country that will allow you to stay connected, even if you no longer live in Colorado Springs.

As you prepare to graduate, please take a moment to update your contact information online - it will only take a few minutes of your time and will ensure that we are able to stay in touch with you once you leave the campus.
